Inter eclipses exorior.

I shine in the dark

La grande & riche Coupe d’or, portee à present en
Devise par Monsigneur le Dauphin,[1] me sembleroit re-
presenter le Crater du Corbeau d’Apollo: qui (selon les
Poetes) fut transferé en luisant sine celeste. Et quant au
mot de la Devise, se pourroit aussi referer, à l’heureuse
naissance dudit Signeur.

Notes:

1.  The Dauphin in 1557 was François, son of Henri II and Catherine de Medici, and husband of Mary, Queen of Scots; he was king briefly as François II, 1559-60.
